2020 Yamaha YZ250

2020 Yamaha YZ250 (Yamaha /)
First introduced in 1974, the Yamaha YZ250 has stood the test of time. The YZ250 is an ideal bike for a rider who wants a two-stroke motocrosser that is fun to ride and easy to maintain, while rebelling against the modern-day four-strokes. It has a long power delivery, plush KYB suspension, and proven durability. Of the big six manufacturers, Yamaha is one of only three to still offer a 250cc two-stroke motocross bike in 2020 and is the last premix-burning quarter-liter MXer from Japan. It’s also the only bike in its category to come with a cable-actuated clutch.
